Repairing 6 Common Laundry Mistakes
“The only people who don't make any mistakes are those who don't do anything.”
― Kelvin Wong Mistakes happen, unfortunately when it comes to laundry mistakes can happen a lot. Here are a few of the more common mistakes people make with laundry and how to repair the issues.
Mistake #1 – Set Stains Once a stain has been dried it can be extremely hard to remove, but it may be possible to get it out. Try a bit of stain remover several times, once may not be enough. Soaking the item may also be required for stubborn stains. For white clothing/items use a bit of lemon juice on the stain and put it in the sun. The combination of the leman and sun will work as a bleaching agent. Rinse items thoroughly and wash normally.
Mistake #2 – Dull Whites After time white fabrics can become grayed or yellowed and look dingy. For seriously dull whites follow these three steps.
Soak in a solution of water and 2 tablespoons of liquid dish soap and rinse.
Soak in a solution of water and 2 tablespoons of ammonia, rinse thoroughly.
Soak in warm water and 2 tablespoons of vinegar, rinse thoroughly. After soaking allow the item to dry, wash as usual.
